What to Submit?
1 original, poem on the theme of ............. FEAR
Since the last contest filled so quickly & the world is more fearful in the moment than I have ever seen, I decided to run this PROMPT again.
Please look at your writing as a way to release some of your own fears OR to support those going through the same situations right now.
Below are some things people world-wide are fearful of:
Lack of FOOD (don't forget our furry children!)
Lack of SHELTER (animals too fear for their habitats)
Fear of ABUSE
Fear of VIOLENCE etc.
*20 of the last 35 verses entered COULD HAVE BEEN in the top ten IF you would only put your verses through a GRAMMAR CHECKER & ask a friend to edit for you.
Any form is acceptable.
First Prize, Glory
